Fram, a Georgia Radio Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement inductee, built an acclaimed radio and broadcasting career during two decades on airwaves in Atlanta (99X), Alabama (WABB) and New York (1019RXP) before CMT President Brian Philips tapped the trend-setter to lead the music strategy division at the channel.
She continued her passion for breaking artists by launching the network’s ‘Next Women of Country’ events in support of female artists. In the last two years the program has highlighted Brandy Clark, Jana Kramer, Kelsea Ballerini, Mickey Guyton, RaeLynn, Angaleena Presley, Maddie & Tae, Lindsay Ell, Kelleigh Bannen, Cassadee Pope, Lauren Alaina and Danielle Bradbery.
With numerous charitable contributions to her credit, Fram was honored as the first woman to receive the TJ Martell Award in recognition of outstanding performance in the music industry (2000) in addition to many accolades including the NARAS-Atlanta Heroes Award (2009). The 2014 Leadership Music graduate currently serves on the boards of TPAC (Board of Governors), ACM (Board of Directors) and NARAS-Nashville (Advisor to Board of Governors).
City National Bank is the Presenting Sponsor for the 2015 Rising Women on the Row.
